Default HS605 dies, model too.

Yesterday I experienced the crash of my 1/5th scale T28 due to the failure of a Hitec HS605 on the elevator. It appears that the yellow wire from the pot broke away from the circuit board due to poor resitance to vibration. The loss of course hurts. While the model was a number of years old it was just starting on the fifth gallon of fuel through the ST2500. It appears that servo intended to replace the 605 have taken measures to withstand vibration. Would that I had known the problem. I have made what I hope is judged an objective review of what happened here and have posted it on my web site:

There is a video and then a look inside the servo.

Sorry to hear about what happened. If you would like the servo repaired please send it to the service dept.
